SIGNIFICANCE OF HMCS HAIDA

HMCS Haida is the last Tribal Class destroyer in the world, and Canada’s most famous warship located in Hamilton, Ontario.

  • Arctic 1943-1945
  • English Channel 1944
  • Normandy 1944
  • Biscay 1944
  • Korea 1952-1954
  • is the last survivor of the twenty-seven Tribal Class destroyers, thirteen of which, including HMCS ATHABASKAN, were lost during the Second World War;
  • is one of only three remaining of the over four hundred Canadian warships from the Second World War, a time when Canada’s navy was the third largest in the world;
  • sank more surface tonnage than any other Canadian ship during that conflict and consequently is known as Canada’s fightingest ship;
  • is the only survivor of the eight Canadian warships that served during the Korean War from 1950 to 1953; and along with HMCS SACKVILLE, receives appropriate honours when passed by ships of the current fleet.
